To tie in with the World Cup, CAFOD Liverpool had its own World Cup tournament involving local Catholic primary schools on Thursday 8th July (the Thursday before the World Cup final). All the action took place at St Albert’s Catholic Primary School in Stockbridge Village. Each school represented a different country in Africa. The eight schools involved were St Albert’s (Nigeria), St Margaret Mary’s Juniors (Cameroon), St Michael and All Angels (Ivory Coast), The federation of St Cuthbert’s and St Sebastian’s Team A (Rwanda), St Christopher’s (South Africa), The federation of St Cuthbert’s and St Sebastian’s Team B (Ethiopia), St John’s (Ghana) and St Brigid’s (Algeria). After a nail-biting final betweenRwanda and the Ivory Coast, the eventual winners of the CAFOD Cup were Rwanda and the Ivory Coast, who decided to share the trophy instead of going to penalties. Every child who took part received a CAFOD world cup medal, certificate and each school received a fairtrade football.
